Well hello!! :)
I've decided to each week make a post about the Little Women event that's coming up next month! Today, I'm going to introduce one of the judges who will be helping me decide finalists for the categories I announced. If you haven't heard about this event you can go to this link: http://rebecca-livinginthepast.blogspot.com/2010/01/little-women-of-2010-literary-inspired.html and read all about it!
I'm also going to announce a few changes I've made about the categories you can enter.
Anyways, let me introduce one of the judges for the event: Atlanta Shannon. I met Atlanta May of 2007 at a reenactment. Since then, we've becoming very close friends. She taught me all about sewing and authenticity and such and I owe all my knowledge about reenacting and sewing to her. So, I though she would be a perfect judge for Little Women of 2010!
"Atlanta first began sewing in 2004, making outfits for her family to wear for their first 1860s reenactment. Six years later, after countless modern and historical sewing projects (some successful and some not :^) she still loves sewing and history more than ever. She said that she is flattered to be asked to be a judge for Little Women 2010, and can't wait to see all the lovely entries!"
Also, I'd like to tell you about some changes I made regarding the categories to enter (I've made the changes on the original blog post, but I wanted to make sure I let everyone know about them)... I've made a few adjustments on the first category (new description below) and i've added a new category that was suggested by a few of my readers.
1. Little Women Inspired Post - I have often heard people say that their four sisters are just like the four sisters in Little Women. They have the same character traits and behaviors! This category is pretty much open to any kind of blog post about Little Women such as, you can write about your sisters (or just yourself) and how you relate to the March sisters. Or you can also create a blog post dedicated to a certain character from the story. Almost anything is accepted, just be creative!
5. Artsy Little Women - In this category you can create any sort of artsy thing having to do with Little Women. Drawing, sketching, crafting, etc. is allowed in this category. If you want to know if a particular thing belongs in the this category, just drop me a note and I'll let you know.
I also would like to clarify that you don't have to have three sisters to participate in these challenges!
